in afghanistan is down to a handful, perhaps two dozen or so. there are those in the presidential race who say, look, we can get out a lot quicker even than president obama thinks we can. is our mission done in afghanistan? >> no. no. >> why not? you have to folk ds sh. >> our mission is not done in -- our mission in afghanistan was not just to capture and bring bin laden to justice, although that was a big part of it, and i commend president bush and particularly president obama for having carried it out. i thought that was one of the high points of his presidency for which he will always get credit historically, whether he wins or loses re-election. it's a gutsy decision and the president carried it out 100%. but our mission in afghanistan is to basically end al qaeda and get the taliban under control so it doesn't go back to what it was in the past and to create a stability there so they don't threaten us in the future. so that doesn't become again the breeding ground for a tax on america the way it was in 2001. we're not there yet. afghanistan is a state of chaos and confusion, not in a st

afghanistan and iraq at the current levels of military spending and let's assume that we don't do that for the next decade, so we save ourselves magically a trillion dollars by assuming that we're not going to keep them at the current levels. well, no one seems we're going to keep them at the current levels, so that supposed trillion dollars of savings is completely phony, as is the half a trillion dollars in interest savings that would come about as a result of this. the iraq and afghan war spending is not built into the baseline of the budget, the $45.9 trillion worth of spending that the government is now forecast over the next decade, we're not building into that baseline afghanistan and iraq at the current levels, so the president has phony savings like that but the tax increases he keeps talking about, some of them, the public ones, are ridiculous. six times during his news conference, he talked about a $3 billion tax -- >> jon: uh-oh we lost our feed from karl there, he is based in austin, texas these days and for whatever reason, maybe we didn't pay the satellite bills, bu
are helping insurgents, enemies of the united states in afghanistan and effectively helping to kill americans and other nato forces there. what are they saying about that? >> well, wolf, it doesn't make sense when you look ate from an american perspective. when i was in pakistan earlier this year, pakistani officials are very concerned about two things. they feel a threat from india. they're worried about the indians having influence in afghanistan. there are some elements within pakistan that use these insurgents in afghanistan as sort of a check on india's power there. they don't like this idea of this rival india having influence on the other side of the border. the other thing they worry about is going into the tribal regions, by doing so they kick up a hornet's nest and then those people start to make attacks in places where people really care. you can liken to a very rural part in alaska, there would be a difference between something happening there and something happening in the heart of times square manhattan. that's sort of the pakistani perspective on that, wolf. >> a juror in the c

overnight. a bomb blast in eastern afghanistan leaves three nato service members dead. at this hour, the victim's nationalities are being withheld. this comes on the heels of a weekend attack that left another nato soldier dead, killed by a man dressed in an afghan army uniform. it happened when david petraeus handed over control. it shows petraeus transferring power to lieutenant general john allen. in september, petraeus will become director of the c.i.a. and another bus tour crashing. this one leaving at least two people dead. it happened about 55 miles south of rochester, new york. the bus was on its way from washington, d.c. to niagara falls when the driver lost control, veered down a grassy embankment into the woods. 35 passengers are hurt. four of them are in critical condition. early reports indicate a tire blowout might have caused that crash. and the video is incredible and horrifying at the same time. a look at what happened, a stage collapse at a cheap trick concert and it was all caught on camera. it happened during a thunderstorm at the ottawa blues fest. thousands of

afghanistan is also winding down and that's the trillion dollars they thought they'd save but they don't list anything with the harry reid plan and not to look at entitlements, how could you possibly say we're taking a hard look and making tough decision abouts the future of our -- of the country economically and not look at entitlements when even the president of the united states has had a problem. let's look at john boehner. he says, all right, i'll raise the debt ceiling. this is what i mean by a two phased plan. just a trillion dollars and we'll have $1.2 trillion in cuts by the end of the year. the future cuts will be commissioned and sent up after they commission a bipartisan panel to decide, you know, republicans or democrats to decide which will be cut and what shouldn't. >> and apparently, it would be along the lines of the cut, cap and balance as you can see right there. here is something that speaker boehner said why he cannot support the democrats' plan. he said the administration says they need all of the increase up front so he doesn't have to deal with this until after the ele

minister criticized a political rival on television news. >>> also in afghanistan a homicide bomber blew himself up inside a mosque during a memorial service for president hamid karzai's half brother. the blast killed five people, including the head of a council of clerics and a young child. the explosion wounded 15 others. the taliban claims responsibility but remains quiet on this mosque attack. karzai was a high-ranking official in kandahar's government, also considered one of the most powerful men in southern afghanistan. health let's well, a 6-year-old girl from illinois tees her way right into the record book by sinking a hole in one. reagan kennedy becoming the youngest golfer ever to hit a hole in one since the links at ireland grove opened some five years ago. and reagan kennedy, she joins us now by phone with her dad, steve kennedy also on the line. hi, steve, hi, reagan. >> hi, heather, how are you? heather: doing fine. how are you doing? >> we're doing well. heather: so, reagan, how surprised were you that you hit this hole in one? >> very surprised. heather: could you see th
, mullah omar was dead. we're following the story. we go live to kabul, afghanistan. david, this one has got people wondering. what's going on? >> reporter: well, the news first broke by an afghan television station and then later in the day, cnn and other media received a message by an individual claiming to be a top taliban commander. that individual said that mullah omar had died of heart failure last week and a successor had already been named. the taliban, like you said, later came out and said they have been the victim of a hacking and their phones and emails have been tapped. in fact this message was phoney. cnn doesn't have any confirmation of the sort. we spoke with nato official and they have no operational knowledge on the ground. so the whereabouts of mullah omar are unknown. last believed to be in pakistan, where taliban militants have launched attacks across that border against troops down in the southern region. it's those southern and eastern regions of afghanistan that have experienced some of the highest levels of attacks. and this all comes at a very interesting time.
're putting money in other places like to the war, places like that in afghanistan, to other wars. that is my question. guest: two interesting things your question brings up. when fdr designed so security, he said, we're going to put it on your checks every week so you will see it being taken out and you will note it is there for you. that was very, very important to fdr and the preservation of the social safety net. also, he said, we are going to make sure that every time -- that you know this is something that is solvent, but the money is there in the bank so it is not a welfare program but it should not be means tested. we all know what happens to welfare programs. we all know they go under the knife. he said it had to apply to everyone. that is one of the things they want to attack at this point, too. you may say, well, the wealthy should not because it is in financial trouble. it is not. the minute you make of a welfare program, the death warrant. host: we have heard recruitment efforts will be hurt by any perceived abandonment in the area of medicare by democratic leaders. your thoughts
in iraq, or afghanistan, by maintaining our current level of troops for the next ten years and nobody believes we'll maintain the current level of troops we have in iraq, or afghanistan, for the next ten years, so, this is phony savings, as is the claimed half trillion dollars in interest savings by not spending the trillions we weren't going to spend otherwise. alisyn: there are reports, obviously, the president invited congressional leaders, democratic and republicans, to the white house tomorrow and there are also reports out yesterday, "the new york times," that the white house has agreed to cut in entitlements. and, sounds like there may be progress, and, room to open the debate? >> there could be, but the question about the entitlement cuts is, are they real? are they likely to be realized and are they sooner rather than later? the president, we need to be on a glide path but for example the president offered, again, from my discussions with people who are knowledgeable about these discussions, between the white house and the congress, is they've offered a trillion dollars worth

have to go to war in afghanistan and iraq. and that means we're going to have to spend billions of dollars that we hadn't accounted for. if we had a balanced budget amendment, we wouldn't have been able to do that without raising taxes significantly. there's no way we could have cut spending quickly enough to be able to finance going to war. so there are some contingencies that make a balanced budget something that we should think twice about. you know, there's another great saying, be careful what you wish for. and we don't want to get ourselves in that hole. but if we had a federal capital budget, which would allow us to do our long-term investing offline, not on the operating budget, it might be something to be considered. but not now and not for politics. and it doesn't have anything to do with the short-term problem of getting ourselves out of the deficit. if we had a balanced budget amendment that passed in the next two years, we'd have to make massive cuts and huge tax increases to balance the budget in year three. there's no other way we could do it. >> governor, a quick

victims, that sort of thing. the relatives of soldiers slain in iraq and afghanistan also allegedly hacked. that's the thing about this story. it's one thing to say that celebrities and athletes and politicians' numbers were hacked. they are not particularly sympathetic figures for the general public. but when you talk about members of the general public, just people, just victims, people grieving over the recent knowledge that a loved one has been killed, that's something that everybody on all sides of the aisle have called appalling and deplorable and unacceptable. the statement by james murdoch today, i just had a chance to read it through. it's a long, perhaps 1500 word statement. in it, he says the good things that the "news of the world" does, this is the largest english language circulation paper in the world, the seventh biggest in terms of circulation newspaper in the world, but he says the good things that the paper does have been sullied by behavior that was wrong. indeed, he writes in recent allegations are true, that behavior was inhuman and has no place in our company. the "n
